Message from Commissioner
Panaji is a growing city. Before we go out of proportion, the city needs to take some smart measures and bold decisions. A short term inconvenience can lead to long term gains for the benefit of the citizens. The social fabric of Panaji is unique and will be preserved. Tree cover, mangroves, springs, fields, the river are Panaji's natural heritage. The plan will include inclusion of natural resources into the planning process. We also look to bringing convenience to citizens through the effective use of technology. This is where e-governance comes in. Smart water metres, online tax payments and online application for permissions is where we can create an interface between citizens and government bodies. Citizen consultation is critical to city planning. The people of Panaji have always come forward to assist and be involved in matters related to the city. This is what is special about Panaji".
